Barron Trump tested positive for COVID-19 after his parents were infected but did not exhibit any symptoms, first lady Melania Trump revealed Wednesday.
“Naturally my mind went immediately to our son. To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think ‘what about tomorrow or the next day?’. My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive,” she wrote in a press release.
“Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms,” the first lady wrote. “In one way I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of one another and spend time together. He has since tested negative.”
Melania Trump and President Trump both tested positive for the virus in early October. The president was admitted to Walter Reed Military Medical Center for treatment and later released. The president has since resumed his normal campaign schedule.
